#26 Lace and Fur Scarf
Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2008/09: “Helen Firing integrated a humanely harvested beaver yarn into a scarf with a traditional lace pattern, worked in two halves and joined at the center back. knit on a circular needle, the openwork is done primarily in Paula Lishman’s ‘Double Stranded Silk,’ interspersed with a single row of ‘Short Sheared Beaver Fur’ every several rows. After each fur row, the work slides to the other side of the needle so the fur can be carried up the side. To learn how this yarn is produced, go to furyarn.com.”
